Get up and running with the cutting-edge DAW Cubase 7 in this quick one-hour class. Author Pieter Schlosser shows how to use Cubase 7 to create your music, starting with the very first steps: setting up audio and VST connections, utilizing templates, and customizing your Cubase workspace. Then learn how to import audio, set your tempo, and create a click track and markers. The next chapter shows you how to record and edit audio tracks, including how to overdub and loop, as well as apply and edit fades and crossfades. Then, Pieter moves into MIDI recording and editing, covering how to choose sounds, edit performances in the Piano Roll view, and use MIDI controller lanes to enhance the performance. He wraps up the course with a chapter on adding effects, creating aux sends, automating your mix, and exporting the final track.
In this video, we will get familiarized with Cubase Mix Console, getting us ready to mix our song. We will tailor the Mix Console to suit our workflow, allowing for very quick and efficient navigation and results. Before we do, let's go up here to our Toolbar, right-click and select Media and Mix Console Windows. Here you can open the Mix Console, and there it is. Let's expand this to Full Screen. If we take a quick look, we can see our Transport up here, our Routing, Inserts, Equalizer, Strip and Sounds over here. Further down are your Faders with Mute, Solo, or Paner in our tracks. Let's customize our layout a little bit by going up here. Let's get rid of the Channel Selector.
Open our EQ Curve, our Meter Bridge, and our Control Room. Click anywhere outside of this box to get back to the mixer. Now let's see what we have, we have a meter bridge up here, an EQ, again our Routing, Inserts, EQ and strip, and our Faders. We can always change this by dragging up and down on any section. Since I have my meters down here, I'm going to get rid of these. Let's go back up here, and get rid of Meter Bridge, that's much better.
At this point, we don't need to see a routing. So I'm going to get rid of this as well. Let's go up to Racks, click on Routing to get rid of it. This is much better. Now, next to this I'm going to click on the Rack settings and click on Exclusive. This way, when I click through these, only one of them will be visible at a time. Next, let's go over here and click on Meter. Let's go down here and make our faders a little bit bigger, much better. Now that we are familiar with Cubase's Mix Console, we are able to customize certain views and parameters to best suit our workflow and needs. We can also navigate through the various sections in Racks quickly and efficiently, getting us ready to start mixing.
